This is no April Fools trick…

# 63 I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me when I saw the flowers in my picture on someone’s yard. They could have fooled me for some fake flowers. Until I got close and touched them myself then I was sure it’s real... I’ve never seen such flowers before. They look like someone just stuck them in the grass on a stick or something. They seem to just shoot out from the ground out of nowhere. The stem is about 1 cm, or less than half an inch in diameter. It’s about 30 cm or a foot long (the part from just above the ground to the flowers). It’s kind of brownish color with very soft white furs and very strong. It’s a very strange plant to me but pretty flowers nonetheless... Does it look familiar to you? With my limited knowledge of plants and flowers, I won’t be surprised if it is just me who find this strange and interesting the way it grows…

Oohhh... this must be it then... It is getting close to Easter... Tell me, are the ones outside your bedroom French doors look similar to the one in my picture? I mean, do they look like they're on a stick still planted in the ground with no leaves?

@sishy7 Of course, Easter moves a bit each year but it is always somewhere near that these bloom. I've attached a photo of mine. I wrote about them here a while back. I'll attach a link.

I see what you mean . . . because I know I've seen artificial flowers exactly like that before. At the same time, I know there are real ones, but couldn't tell you anything more about them! I saw a bunch of red/yellow ones at the store the other day . . . in large bunches and with longer stems than what you have here.

@sishy7 they are artificial orchids my friend, and i really thought they were real. my brother commented in one of my posts on FB that 'it was good the violet orchids did not yet wither'. . i also have another discussion about 'thinking it was fake'.
